Track Name: earthbound
I’m not trying to shock you, I’m not trying to scare you
I’m not trying to gain your pity, respect, or envy
I’m yelling at you for my own selfish reasons
To ease the pain of being conscious
I’m just a worm feeding off the earth
I only know when it rains, I never see the sunlight ever
No, I haven’t been alive during the times
That I would call the good old times
You wanna be happy, I don’t wanna be sad
I just want the future to be better than the past
I’m grateful for my vision, I’m grateful for my health
I’m grateful for the weather, and I’m grateful for myself
I’m grateful that the future has so much possibilities
I’m grateful that there’s so much in this world that I’ve got left to see
Track Name: gloomy
(finger pick)
G, C, D, C, G
I am angry and I am sad
And I am searching for a place to rest my head
But I’m too selfish and self-involved
All I can think of is how shitty I’ve become

C, G, C, G
Cause I never ask you how you’re doing
I never ask if you’re day was fine
I never wonder why you’re gloomy
I only focus on the pain that’s mine

D, C, G
Should have taken the advice of my father
“You’re defined by what you give to others”
Should have taken the advice of my father
“You’re defined by what you give to others”

(strum)
And I wish that I gave more
Track Name: feeling things
I hate having empathy for every human soul
When someone breaks their leg, I feel I chipped bones breaking
I’m sad for hours and then I’m sad again
I feel what you feel
I really feel what you feel

I hate never fully being accepted into a crowd
I hate being the odd one out, I hate being the odd one out
But I always am, ever since I was a kid
A poor albino seedling growing out of nothing, nothing

But I’ll always persevere through everything
Cause I know, yes I know, that I’m worth it
Track Name: pizza party
My brain is a cynic, but my heart is an optimist
And my spine can’t choose what side it’s on
My circulatory system is all fucked up
From all the one man ice cream pizza parties I host
And I wish there was anything to fix this,
To make me feel like I’m not sick

So I take my medicine, day and night
So I take my medicine, as prescribed
So I take my medicine, day and night
So I take my medicine, as prescribed

But I’ve got nothing to show for it
I’m always angry and moody as shit
But I’ve got nothing to show for it
Except that I am not dead yet
Except that I am not dead yet
I am not dead yet
Not dead yet
Track Name: all we have is right now
Sometimes we’ve gotta say what we’re really thinking
Sometimes we’ve gotta say how we really feel
We need to tell our loved ones how much they really mean to us
Before they’ve left or they’re dead under the ground

Because a lifetime is fleeting
Especially everything right now
I’ll never feel the same kind of heartache
That I felt back in my old hometown

You’ll never be this young again
Yeah you’ll never feel this young again

Sometimes we’ve gotta say what we’re really thinking
Sometimes we’ve gotta say how we really feel
We need to tell our loved ones how much they really mean to us
Before they’ve left or they’re dead under the ground
